Previous reviews have said it all. Jilly & Michael make you so welcome that it's just like staying with good friends (who have a lovely home). We were on a house-hunting trip and they were a great help with advice and suggestions

Warm welcome from Jilly & Michael. Well appointed rooms, immaculately clean, great breakfast, great location in lovely village a few miles south east of Stamford. This is bed and breakfast from the heart. Perfect!

This is a high standard house with pleasant rooms and a wide variety of additional aspects including a super garden, kitchen for guests and a kitchen. Our hosts were simply lovely people who offered us a warm welcome, chat and a glass... More

Another lovely stay with Jilly and Michael, and a lovely welcome home message, just adds to the gently charm of the stay at Rowan House. This is no normal B & B it is the best you could ever wish for. I even got to see a woodpecker ! Breakfast was lovely even if the fairy's hid the mushrooms !... More

Lovely house, two delightful dogs and the best hosts anyone could wish for. Being at Rowan House is more like visiting old friends than staying at a B&B. As two mature couples we were offered and had the use of the East Landing – two bedrooms, bathroom, comfortable sitting room and a useful kitchen – for four days, which was... More

A warm welcome on arrival; generous, hospitable touches everywhere, a gentle nudge from Peppy at eight o'clock - wants you to play with her teddy bear; delicious breakfast - and where else would you be asked if you'd like capers with your scrambled eggs and mushrooms? Loved it. Christine and Derek Hertfordshire

My wife, my sister and I stayed with Jilly and Michael in July (sorry for late review; no excuse). All the good things about Rowan House have been said but mainly the stay there is about Jilly and Michael who were a joy to be with. We would certainly recommend RH to our friends and hope to stay there again... More

We are New Zealanders and were in Stamford for the Burghley Horse Trials and couldn't have found a more wonderful place to stay. Right from the time we arrived at Rowan House Jilly and Michael made us feel right at home. They both love people and are the supreme hosts. They both go that extra mile to make sure everything...
